De Gea vs Courtois, Rooney vs Costa and more…
A look at Manchester United’s new-look XI and how it compares to Premier League champions Chelsea, player by player:
GK: David de Gea vs Thibaut Courtois
Two of the best goalkeepers in the world at the moment, David de Gea arguably just edges Thibaut Courtois after having a worse defence in front of him but single-handedly winning games for his club last season.
Vote: De Gea
DR: Matteo Darmian vs Branislav Ivanovic
While United new-boy Matteo Darmian may look a good signing, it remains to be seen if he can even come close to becoming as important a player as Branislav Ivanovic is for Chelsea.

DL: Luke Shaw vs Cesar Azpilicueta
No contest here, with United left-back Luke Shaw not at his best in his first season at Old Trafford, while Cesar Azpilicueta is one of the best left-backs in Europe.
